Although looking at the list, looks like Stan Lee would take the biggest hit. Probably drop him down to just Mallrats.
Ratzenberger would take a huge hit as well. He'd lose the bulk of his Pixar work as well as Empire Strikes Back.

Show me a list that excludes all voice-acting roles, and that only counts an actor when they are one of the five top-billed in the movie.

Re: 5 years from now the highest grossing actor of all-time will be Zoe Saldana.

Is the actor given credit for the entire series, regardless of which films (or how many) he/she was in?

No. Just appearances in movies they were actually in.

If we took out his, then they'd be reason to take out others who had very small roles in high grossing movies. Samuel L Jackson also only had cameos in some off the Marvel movies so hecould lose$1 billion if you don't count those. Kathy Bates had only a few scenes in Titanic, yet she gets a $600 million boost for being in that one. Lots of big well known acotrs on the list are getting their totals beefed u on thhe lfor having just small non leading roles in a number of movies.

I think Harison Ford is hurt the most on this list due to effects of inflation on ticket prices. At one point in time he was in six of the top ten highest grossing domestic movies of all time. He was one of the biggest stars in the 1980's and 1990's, but his movies from 2000 and up haven't grossed as much. Adjusting the list for inflation would likely get him in the #1 position.

The website I pulled this info from had a number of different lists based on different criteria. There was one just for leading role. Although leading role can be interpreted many ways. Did Guardians of the Galaxy have a "leading role" or was it more of an ensemble cast. The argument could be made for Chris Pratt, but most of the others got just as much screen time and most people weren't going to see him but to see a cgi character (though Vin Diesel gets credit for him).

I'm surprised Spielberg isn't in the Top 3. For a while there in the 80s and 90s that dude's name was on damn near everything!

Inflation likely hurts him. But, the list is also for "executive producer" and not director. I doubt most executive producers do much if anything. In Stans case it's unlikely he has any involvement in producing and it is more of an honorary thing with him and it could possibly be legally required for him to be listed with that title in every Marvel movie.

Jerry Bruckheimer is usually a producer, which is more prestigious and hands-on than an executive producer. More often than not, the credit of executive producer is a bullshit one, given to the likes of Stan Lee for doing next to nothing. The Best Picture Oscar always goes to the producers, not the executive producers.

Oops, I guess I have seen him in something. I thought he was the WILLOW guy. I never knew what else he was in. (Although I wish I'd never seen RETURN OF THE JEDI.)

Warwick Davis has been in the Star Wars films since Jedi & the Harry Potter films. Of course he is almost always in costumes or in make-up so he doesn't get face recognition.

He is "the Willow guy."

He's the Willow Guy, and he's Wicket the Ewok. He's also in Episodes I and VII, and all of the Harry Potter movies. So the vast majority of his totals are from Star Wars and Harry Potter
